Nice chat with Cathy and Calvin today (they do the radio station for Taxi Drivers)- I think this was my first radio interview!
Panels and Talks
We're going to be speaking at SCAD style tomorrow at 7:30- come over and take a look if you like; the building itself is a great thing to see.
Handsome has hit Berlin. We drove our taxi all the way to Europe. Prepare to receive regular blog transmissions! A sneak preview of the Handsomest spot in all of Deutschland:
Had the great pleasure of being invited to Hong Kong Design Institute to lecture on the business of design and local production. Slightly hampered by lecturing in a 3rd language (had to switch to English to explain 'Production Possibility Frontier') but on the whole it went well.
A sneak preview of the TVB interview we gave at our new 'Handsome Headquarters', the Commune- more on this soon and opening party on the 28th! Photo Credits to Kent Wong
Incredibly busy weekend- so busy that we've only now had the opportunity to blog about it. Hot on the heels of doing MaD Pecha Kucha in Guangzhou, Handsome has been at MaD's Social Enterprise Summit and TEDx Youth Day. Joe managed to hobble on stage to foot-stamping and applause after completing Trailwalker in 27.5 hours and Billy handled TEDx fresh from supporting Joe's team out at Tai Mo Shan early that morning. Two fantastic events, we're happy and honoured to have been invited.
Hi everyone. Joe is going to be talking at MaD@SES on the 20th. I won't be there because I'll be talking at TED that day but you guys can go see him and tell me about it. If you would like a ticket then tell us and we can get you a discount. Tickets are $150 and after the discount they are $105 - all the other info can be found here
Joe and I took the day out on Sunday to take a road trip up to Guangzhou to speak at MaD PechaKucha @ Guangzhou. Check them out here. Got some nice feedback and some nice photos too, actually the bit about the dodgy Cantonese is a bit embarrassing but I was under pressure!:
